Brutal Legend (Xbox 360)

 

Double Fine's Brutal Legend is an unabashed love letter to an era and genre of music that celebrated fast guitar riffs and hard living. It's also a tribute to an epic lore that spoke of conquerors and death--all of which were often depicted at once on...

Brutal Legend Review

 

Brutal Legend is like Guitar Hero but without the use of the guitar.

Like I said before, this game is a metal epic. From the voice acting and the excellent music to the story and the many references to metal, this game is pure fun. Brutal Legend even has in fighting between publishers and developers, both arguing over...

Great characters ; Nice mix of genres ; Awesome music ; Superb voice acting

Repetitive side missions ; Summoning the Deuce ; Minor glitches

Brutal Legend

 

This is not a tribute to the greatest metal game ever, this is a review of the greatest metal game ever.

Brutal Legend is a game chock full of sweet tribute to the metal gods. It is a love letter from developer Double Fine to the Heavy Metal sound and culture. While the gameplay itself is merely competent, the entire package – the sights, the sounds, the...

Jurassic Rock

And while most story missions consist of Stage Battles, these are also the only times you have to worry about resources and base protection. There are a ton of side quests to earn points for upgrading your axe, guitar and vehicle, and even more hidden...

Brutal Legend (Xbox 360) Review

 

Tim Schafer's ode to Heavy Metal strikes a wonderful chord between Action, RTS, and fun.

Expert review by:

Brutal Legend

 

No doubt everyone is well aware of Brutal Legend by now, as the Jack Black fuelled marketing machine was in full swing for months prior to the game's release. Something that is an unusual trait for a Tim Schafer game, which generally enjoy slipping...

You owe it to yourself to give this game a test drive at some point, just for the laughs if nothing else. It may be rough around the edges and have an RTS system that would confuse some people, but overall it's a solid game that will entertain you time...

Brütal Legend Review [X360, PS3]

 

It may be strange to describe Brütal Legend as an inverted pyramid, but I think it's accurate — the game is impressive and inspired, but fundamentally flawed. The Egyptians started with the base, an elementary notion that seems to have escaped Tim...

Script is filled with laughs ; Voice talent is perfect for their roles ; Music culture parodied and built into gameplay

Extreme issues communicating information to the player ; Problems with collision detection in battles ; Repetitive side quests

Polished in all the wrong places, Brütal Legend shows off brilliant humor and a deep love of metal and music. Though there are serious issues with control and information given to the player, this is one of the most unique games on the market.

Review: Brutal Legend (Xbox 360)

 

Tim Shafer has always created great games that are normally critically acclaimed, yet never have any amount of commercial success.  Brutal Legend went through a tumultuous sequence of events on its way to release, but throughout the process, looked to...

And this is where I am completely perplexed for a score on Brutal Legend.  On one hand, the action is repetitive, side quests dull, and overall fun is lacking, and yet, I could come back and just enjoy driving around and experience the well...

Brutal Legend

 

You know, I was not really interested in Brutal Legend at first. Granted, Tim Schafer is a brilliant game designer, having made games the defy genres and are considered among the best made, even if they did not sell well. It's just that I am not a fan...
